3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, 375ml corked, at Patricks. It pours a non-see through bright orange body, with a thin layer of white bubbles. Some barnyard and sweaty horse in the aroma, but mostly it’s lemon peel. Lightly funky. Maybe a bit heavy on the carbonation, but it’s fine, medium bodied and tart. Lemon dominates the flavor too, there’s some leather hints and barnyard as well, and the finish is of the lasting kind with the same flavors as those found initially. Overall, a really refreshing and quenching one that I could certainly have a few of. 120523

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
375 ml bottle. Label is 2010-2011. Pours a clear golden amber with a small white head that has decent retention and leaves some light lacing on the glass. Aroma is funky brett, some light lemon, and a light earthiness. Not terribly complex, but not bad. The taste has a light initial sweetness with some barnyard funk, light lemon, and a decent tartness. The finish has a funky earthiness. Medium body. Light carbonation. Not bad, but not nearly as complex as the best gueuzes. I’ll be curious if the 3-year blend is a big improvement over this 2-year blend.

2011 vintage -
Pours murky darkish orange with a small foamy head. Strong tart fruity aroma with berries, currants and earthy cellar notes. Taste of tart fruits, berries and harsh sourness. Finish is sticky, dry and slightly sweetish. Well balanced, but would probably be better when aged.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Pours a peachy gold with two finger white head that sticks to the glass... Bright aromas of dusty funk and sour fruit; oranges and stonefruit. On the palate its solid carbomation delivers a complex barrage of flavors ranging from light soft peach to a sour funky basement...starting out very fruit heavy then tangy then dry funk. Solid Gueuze !

Bottle - average size foamy head, pretty carbonated, hazy orange copper color, sour orange aroma and flavor, very dry finish - usually not a big fan of this style of beer, but this one’s not bad

05/05/2012 Brasserie 4:20, 750ml bottle shared by Alessandra. Dorata, opalescente, lievemente torbida, schiuma fine e abbondante, bianca, molto persistente. Aroma fantastico, deciso, forte, rustico, terroso, sentori di stalla, cantina, agrumato. In bocca è acida decisa, di grandissimo carattere, agrumata, secca, pulitissima. Corpo medio, carbonazione media. Una fantastica gueuze, letteralmente stupefacente!
